Found at Brennans in Wisconsin. Not a huge imperial, but that makes it easy drinking.

SHIG (3879) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 24, 2012
Bottle: Poured a coppery amber with a cream off white head. Aroma is nice bitter hops, but can also pick out some citrus fruit and malts. Taste is a nice hops bitter up front, nice mix of fruit and malts mellow it a bit. Drank nicely overall and hide the alcohol well.

Bottle sample at Calgary beer fest. Clear amber color, white head. Nice floral aroma. Taste is not too bitter for a DIPA.

16oz can, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Mostly hazy amber color. Good finger of off-white / khaki head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, nice creamy texture. Light slick finish. Easy to drink. There’s a bigger caramel malt presence and sweetness, but it doesn’t really bother me at all here. There’s enough good hop to balance it out. Nice piney, kind of herbal hop aroma, and moderate caramel malt. Lightly peppery. Good bigger bitter taste, balanced by light to moderate sweet. Full, kind of slick mouthfeel. This seems like normally the type of thing I’d not be a fan of, but the taste works well for some reason. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, less of a bite than others this gravity. Pretty enjoyable drinkable balanced DIPA. Great to enjoy with my sandwich.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear medium amber colored IPA with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin film top and some spotty lacing. Aroma of dark pitted fruits, citrus, and a hint of grapefruit. Taste is medium to full bodied, fruity profile flavor with some noble bittern hops, hint of grapefruit zest and some light toffee. Finish is semi-sweet with a medium mild bitterness that slowly disappears with a little alcohol bite.

341ml brown bottle. Golden pour, seems a bit unclear. Mid sized white cap that lasts a while. Nose has some sweet malt notes, caramel and pleasant fruity and citrus hops, mostly sweet and orangey. Taste has grain and caramel at the front, grass and earthy hop midway. Quick bitter finish, lingering grapefruity hops, lighter notes of pine and grass stick around. A bit of alcohol shows up late. Overall decent, tasty, but not super aggressive.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Pours lightly hazed amber orange with a large long lasting beige head. Aroma of resin, pine needles, wood, herb, grapefruit, dark fruit, lemon, not sure of the hops used in this one, but it reminds me of Sorachi Ace. Taste has lots of fruity and malty sweetness but still a hefty bitter finish, kind of a weird metallic bitter finish.

mjg74 (2726) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle from Hamilton MT. Interesting impy IPA here. This brew is quite fruity with a good deal of sweetness. Not really super hoppy. Seems to have some serious Belgian qualities to it. Not great to style, but a pretty tasty beer, none the less.

deyholla (7713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a lot of sweet citrus with a hint of bitter grapefruit and a backing spiced bread note. Flavor has more of a pure citrus note upfront that is joined by bitter grapefruit and has the same spiced bread backing. Unique.
